My genealogical researches have uncovered dozens of devout ancestors. This is the third installment of a series of posts titled “Doing God’s Work: Our Families’ Faithful”, documenting the lives of those who served God.
In the previous post of this series, I presented the life and times of William Christian, a vicar on the Isle of Man. This one focuses on the life of Rev. Joseph Hull.
